, virginia, florida, colorado, too close to call. the senate, mostly breaking as expe expected, but the democrats did pick up three new seats. republicans projected to hold the house as well. >> all right. let's get straight to john harwood at the maproom to give us more color on what we're seeing as the most recent poll closings. over to you, john. >> we're almost completely closing the map of coloring in the map of all the states we knew in advance where they were going to faull. the only state where polls have not closed yet is the state of alaska. we're very confident mitt romney is going to win that based on polls before the election. so we're really waiting for those seven battleground states that haven't been filled in yet. again, to reiterate, as we've talked about before, if president obama wins the state of florida this race is over. he's going to be re-elected for a second term. but if mitt romney wins it, he's got to also win north carolina, he's got to win virginia, where it's very close, and he's got to win the state of ohio, which is really a big one hanging out

and operated by local business people. in the state of florida, there's a law that every station has to be wired for generators, and that occurred over many years. you can't instantly fix this problem with generators. and so, as i've been saying all week, if there's damage at the refineries, you're going to have a supply problem, but there's enough inventory to take care of immediate needs. the colonial pipeline helps the immediate needs but there can be damage at the ports. and so the ports get a lot of imports. but the overall supply should not be the problem. it is getting the gasoline to the point of purchase and then having the ability to purchase and with so much electricity out of order, gas stations are just as impacted as a person's household or retail store. so you've got to get the electricity back up. and i would submit that instant generators is not a fix. >> well, we hope the situation gets cleared up soon for the sake of all the drivers who are sitting in those lines of several hours. thanks so much. talk to you again soon. >>> still to come -- the airports are startin
